We were in this hotel for one night, but we'll absolutely return when we're in the area. Gorgeous hotel, terrific staff, great restaurant. At check-in the staff went out of their way to find us the perfect room. And it was! A corner room with wonderful views, a great bathroom, large towels. I can recommend this hotel to everyone who...

I can't say enough about the Hotel at Kirkwood Center. We travelled to Cedar Rapids from the QCA for a horse show at the Kirkwood Equestrian Center, and I always dread staying at hotels in Cedar Rapids. I booked two rooms at the Hotel for a special pre-paid rate. When we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by the high quality... More

We recently traveled to Cedar Rapids to attend a family gathering. We booked this hotel because it was newer and had decent reviews. The rooms are quite nice, clean and roomy with very comfortable beds. After checking in we found out most of the staff were students at the college of hospitality. Every student we encountered was great. Really friendly... More

Just stayed one night, but would love to stay again. Rooms were beautiful, beds and bedding luxury quality. Ate at the restaurant in the morning, and everything was delicious and fresh, including fresh pastries that were brought out before the meal. Awesome friendly, helpful staff too.

Recently traveled to this hotel built by the community college to train their hospitality students. My family planned a get together here. I cannot say enough about the people at this place. The staff was wonderful, the food really special and the facility lovely. Cedar Rapids is not the first place I would think of as a destination but if... More

I stayed here for a work trip and didn't know anything about the hotel prior to arrival. It operates alongside the adjacent college of hospitality, which meant that most of the people who were helping you were student getting graded on their performance. It works and everyone we encountered was delightful. The rooms were very nice and had a couch... More

Really great hotel- a surprise in every way! They made my work trip so smooth and easy. All the staff was sincerely nice and friendly and helpful. We used the hotel drivers a lot, and they were really friendly and reliable. The food was really good, and the bar had a great old fashioned!

I travel all over the world and live in Chicago. The Hotel was unexpected delight. This is something that you would expect to find in Chicago, LA or Hing Kong. My first stay at TheHotel in March of 2013. I was impressed with The Hotel! It reminded me of the W Hotel on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. It has... More

During a business stay I suffered a severe migraine (not a typical ailment for me); the front desk staff and manager made me an ice pillow (vacuum packed bag of ice WITH a head dip in the middle!) to offer aid. Each staff member genuinely asked if I was ok the next day - was wonderful to feel cared for... More

I thought this hotel was nice. I didn't notice anything extra-special about it, just that it is a little pricey. We didn't pay regular price because we were included on a group rate, but $400 for a regular night would not be in our budget. I didn't think there was anything super special about it that it should cost that... More
